Desk based assessment.
An assessment of the potential impact upon surviving archaeological deposits of a proposed residential development on the former Mann Egerton site has been carried out on behalf of Countryside Properties Ltd. The site lies within the core of the Late Saxon town and medieval city of Norwich. The northern part of the site lies within the precinct of the Greyfriars friary, established in 1226 and dissolved in 1538. Extensive archaeological excavations were carried out on the site between 1992 and 1995. In general the archaeological impact of the proposed scheme is low, provided care is taken during site clearance operations. Preservation in-situ, executed through a variety of strategies, can be achieved across most of the site. It will be necessary, however, to excavate a further area measuring around 7.5m by 30m on the south-western margin of the proposed development area.
